Riu Palace Las Américas Review

A colossal eight-story property at the north end of the Zona, the Palace is visually stunning and different from the modern, minimalist resorts that dot the Zona Hotelera. Here the decoration is a bit baroque. There are towering columns and cupolas in the lobby, and even the most basic guest rooms (all are suites) have ornate mahogany furniture and patterned bedding. The daily origami ritual of swan towel-folding can be rather vexing, as can the boisterous emcee directing poolside games. Each room has its own walk-in closet, sitting room, and four-bottle liquor dispenser. This resort mainly attracts guests over 40.
